Few destinations rival the Kruger National Park. It is the largest game reserve in South Africa and is almost two million hectares of land, where its wild inhabitants thrive. It is an indescribable wildlife experience, and it ranks as one of the best on the African continent, the ultimate safari experience.
Your days will be filled with early morning and afternoon game drives, where each venture into the park holds something new to see. No two days in the Kruger National Park are ever the same and it adds an exciting element. After your time in one of the world’s greatest national parks, you will end with a tour of the Panorama Route, a collection of natural sights that will leave you enamored with the beauty of this country.
This morning you will be collected from your hotel, heading east to the Mpumalanga region. After freshening up at your lodge enter the world-famous Kruger National Park and spend the afternoon game viewing in your closed touring vehicle. The Park offers some of the best game viewing and wildlife opportunities in the world – and the visitor will soon appreciate the challenges of managing this unique reserve. Upon your return to the lodge, enjoy a Boma Dinner around a cosy campfire. [Dinner]

The day begins with early morning coffee or tea, followed by a thrilling open vehicle game drive (with English speaking game ranger) through the Kruger National Park with pre-packed breakfast. Your guide will endeavour to spoil you with sightings of the “Big Five”, general game and prolific bird life. There is an option (for own account and subject to availability) to visit the Kruger Park Anti-Poaching Dog Unit. Meet the dogs that are trained to track poachers in the field, detect firearms, ammunition and wildlife products that enter and exit through the Kruger National Park gates. A portion of the trip price goes towards ensuring that these dogs receive the best possible care in support of the vital work they do. Return to the lodge for lunch (own account) and a short siesta. In the afternoon we will journey once again through the magnificent expanses of the Kruger National Park, unrivalled in its diversity of flora and fauna.
